Love these colors (here)

Pop of Color

I always get excited to design a mood board especially when I have an awesome starting point so imagine how stoked I was when Chairish contacted me again to do a style board around any of their vintage barstools - my choice!!!  The hard part was choosing a set of barstools . . . Chairish has so many amazing vintage stools (see here)

But when they said to create my ideal "woman cave" or "diva den" these two gorgeous Pierre Cardin Attributed barstools just screamed to my inner diva!!! (here

I styled my Diva Den a little mid-century, a little 70's,  with a slight 2016 twist.  I wanted it to be a place that I would love to throw my shoes off, toss my hair back, talk & laugh with my girlfriends until the wee hours of the morning sipping some bubbly.

What do you think? Wanna come pour yourself some champagne?

Check out the rest of their bar-stool collection (here) there are so many to choose from!

Its a kids summer!

I am in love with Old Navy's kids swim selection this year.  So many cute options, colors, and prints!  They have tons of one-pieces and bikinis but since my girls are only 4 and 7 they don't wear bikinis yet!   Call me a prude but I just don't see any reason for little girls to be in a bikini - it really weirds me out. 

Take a look at some of the cute stuff and the best part is that it is so affordable!

and since I only have girls I never look at the boy stuff but I totally fell for their cute board shorts and rash guards!!!

Exciting stuff

I have been working on a front porch mood-board for a friend of mine and I thought I would share! 

Her house is a beautiful classic New England style home - white with black shutters - one of my favorite home looks!  To keep with the classic look but add some color and fun we decided to go with black & white cabana stripes, banana leaf pillows and some great planters.  She is full-of-life and a young fun mum with 2 beautiful baby girls so I want her home to be an extension of her beautiful personality!

The front porch is a long narrow space; there are not many pieces of furniture that will fit so we are going to be using pieces that she already has that fit the space perfectly . . . just going to spray them black with outdoor furniture spray paint!  

We are having pillows and seat cushions made in black & white cabana outdoor fabric and getting the banana leaf outdoor throw pillows from Etsy.  This is going to look great - can't wait to show before and after photos!

Prime Me!

March 22, 2016

It is no secret that I am an Amazon PRIME junkie . . . If I cant find it on Amazon and it's not prime I'm not getting it lol! 

I thought I would share with you my last few Amazon buys that we are enjoying!

 Cutest little Pumas for Emerson (here)

The best birthday present for kids between 5-14yrs (here) OR as an adult drinking game! 

We are big fans of the National Geographic Kids books & magazines (here).  We put them in Emerson's birthday party baggies for all the kids and they were a hit - they have tons of different animals to learn about and are all about $2-3 each 
Mr. Hotpants goes through work watches like no-one I know! I am not sure what he does with them but they always break or go missing! He uses them to time patients so they have to have a seconds hand.  This was the last one he ordered and in person I love it!  The green is awesome (here)

I fell in love with this swimsuit for Emerson! Best part? It is $15 (here)

We are a Burt's family so this pack was perfect - one each - for $9 (here)

I did a little mood-board for a friend who is looking for a red-distressed wood console table for her small entryway . . . I know its not a console table but when I saw that this sweet little bench comes in distressed barn door red I thought she might want to switch up her entryway idea . . . .

This is what the bench looks like  . . .

And this is the red wood swatch that it comes in . . . 

So here was my thoughts.  The bench, a small table/stool to put a little leather catch-all for keys, a mirror, and of course some gorgeous greenery! I put in a few choices for the table/stool as any of these would look great!

What do you think?

Loving on this Fine Friday

March 18, 2016

Happy weekend peeps . . . this is the first weekend in about a month that we have very little plans!!!! I am so excited to just chill! 

I have been browsing online a lot lately because I am designing some mood-boards for our living room, and I have been scoping out all things summer - backyard furniture, swimsuits, outside entertaining so I thought I would share some of my Friday loves with you . . . 

These pool/beach totes are fab (here)

I am in love with this off-the-shoulder top! The color is perfect for summer (here)

Just ordered this sweet little marble-mid-century side table (here)

I picked up some cute little things at F21 on my lunch break this week . . .
Great silky soft lounge pants (here)

Love the back details of this little bralette (here)

I had to have this little make-up bag - the color is the perfect poppy-red! 
Looks like YSL (here)

I also stumbled upon this great little bench for a great price (here)  . . . I think it would look great in a bedroom or entryway (it comes it different colors!)
